No Bake Cinnamon Applesauce Christmas Ornaments Recipe
Easy, DIY Christmas ornament craft using a cinnamon and applesauce dough.
Prep Time 1hour
Total Time 1hour2minutes
2tablespoonsbasic white glue
1 tablespoonground nutmeg or cloves
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Use a spatula and make sure all the cinnamon is absorbed into the applesauce.
Gather the dough with your hands. Knead it several times, pressing the dough firmly into a ball. It will be about the size of a softball.
Sprinkle some cinnamon on a cutting board or other smooth surface. Flatten the ball into a disc with your hands. Using a rolling pin, begin to roll out the dough. Turn the dough several times while rolling, adding more cinnamon to prevent sticking.
Roll until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick and cut out the shapes using cookie cutters.
Gather the leftover dough after the first cutting and again knead it several times, pressing it firmly into a ball. Repeat the rolling process.
Repeat until all the dough is used.
Lay the ornaments on a cookie sheet covered with wax or parchment paper. Using a skewer or small straw, make a hole in the top of each ornament.
Ornaments should dry in 24 to 48 hours. It helps to turn them occasionally so they dry evenly.
String with a piece of twine or ribbon to hang.
I made three batches of dough and got 36 ornaments.
